From Address in Outgoing Email settings no showing as display name to external domains RRS feed

  • Question

  • We built a SharePoint 2010 web application to collaborate with external users, when emails get sent to them for changing user permissions or alerts but the from address shows up as the email address instead of the display name. Has anyone else experienced this issue and/or is there a fix. 


    Thank you.

  • What Mail Server are you using?  Assuming you are using Exchange you may check how the email account is setup.  Make sure that in Active Directory and Exchange a display other than just the email address has been configured.
